Yvain Thonnart received the MS degree from Ecole Polytechnique and an engineering diploma from Telecom Paris, France in 2005. He then joined the Technological Research Division of CEA, the French French Alternative Energies and Atomic Energy Commission, within the CEA-Leti institute until 2019, then within the CEA-List institute. He has led the development of several large research projects for on-chip communications, focusing on the maturation of novel concepts towards industrial adoption, such as communication between multiple voltage and frequency domains, 3D-stacked circuits, and optical on-chip interconnects, leading to more than 70 publications and 10 patents. He is now senior expert on communication and synchronization in systems on chip, and scientific advisor for the mixed-signal design lab. His main research interests include asynchronous logic, networks on chip, physical implementation, emerging technologies integration such as photonics, cryoelectronics and interposers. He is currently serving in the technical program committee of the ISSCC.
